HEALTHY EATING AND ACTIVE LIVING
USDA’s MyPlate Kitchen has healthy recipe options that you can use daily! Sugary drinks contribute to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Try some healthier drink options like tea, sparkling water, or 100% fruit juice.
Regular physical activity is important because it helps to maintain weight, reduce high blood pressure, reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, and more. Some great ways to incorporate some daily physical activity are taking the stairs instead of an elevator, walking or biking to work when the weather permits, actively playing with your children, and light gardening/yard work.
